The Story of Miso-Cup®
Miso (pronounced mee-so), one of Asia's most important foods, was created by the ancient Chinese more than two thousand years ago. Buddhist monks later brought this versatile soyfood to Japan, where it evolved into the delicious miso soup we enjoy today. Miso was originally reserved exclusively for nobility, but it was eventually shared more widely, and has now become a treasured staple in kitchens throughout Asia. The popularity of Japanese cuisine has made miso soup a worldwide favorite, thanks to its wonderful flavor and unique nutritional profile.
To make Miso-Cup® Organic Traditional with Tofu, food artisans age organic soybeans and organic rice with a traditional starter culture called "koji". They employ salt, time and pressure to regulate this aging process and create the culinary treasure known as miso. We freeze-dry their fresh, unpasteurized miso, adding select ingredients, such as organic onion and organic tofu, to make Miso-Cup complete.
Like yogurt, miso is considered to be a living food. That is why Edward & Sons takes extra care to use costly freeze-drying methods that retain many of the living cultures for which fresh miso is prized. Miso-Cup boasts rich, satisfying flavor without any cholesterol or trans fats.
